tails (2.11) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
* Dummy.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 6.5.1 based on Firefox 45.8. (Closes:
- Fix CVE-2017-6074 (local root privilege escalation) by disabling
the 'dccp' module. (Closes: #12280)
- Disable kernel modules for some uncommon network protocol. These
are the ones recommended by CIS. (Part of: #6457)
- Disable modules we blacklist for security reasons. Blacklisted
(via `blacklist MODULENAME`) modules are only blocked from being
loaded during the boot process, but are still loadable with an
explicit `modprobe MODULENAME`, and (worse!) via kernel module
- Upgrade linux-image-4.8.0-0.bpo.2-686-unsigned to 4.8.15-2~bpo8+2.
- Upgrade bind9 to 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u10.
- Upgrade imagemagick to 8:
- Upgrade libevent-2.0-5 to 2.0.21-stable-2+deb8u1.
- Upgrade libgd3 to 2.1.0-5+deb8u9.
- Upgrade libjasper1 to 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u2.
- Upgrade liblcms2-2 to 2.6-3+deb8u1.
- Upgrade libxpm4 to 1:3.5.12-0+deb8u1.
- Upgrade login to 1:4.2-3+deb8u3.
- Upgrade ntfs-3g to 1:2014.2.15AR.2-1+deb8u3.
- Upgrade openjdk-7-jre to 7u121-2.6.8-2~deb8u1.
- Upgrade openssl to 1.0.1t-1+deb8u6.
- Upgrade tcpdump to 4.9.0-1~deb8u1.
- Upgrade vim to 2:7.4.488-7+deb8u2.
- Upgrade libreoffice to 1:4.3.3-2+deb8u6.
* Minor improvements
- import-translations: also import PO files for French from
Transifex. The translation team for French switched to Transifex
even for our custom programs:
- Notify the user, if running on a 32-bit processor, that it won't
be supported in Tails 3.0 anymore. (Closes: #12193)
- Notify I2P users that I2P will be removed in Tails
2.12. (Closes: #12271)
* Bugfixes
- Disable -proposed-updates at boot time. If a Debian point
release happens right after a freeze but we have decided to
enable it before the freeze to get (at least most of) it, then
we get in the situation where -proposed-updates is enabled in
the final release, which we don't want. We only want it enabled
at build time. (Closes: #12169)
- Ferm: Use the variable when referring to the Live user. The
firewall will fail to start during early boot otherwise since
the "amnesia" user hasn't been created yet. (Closes: #12208)
- Tor Browser: Don't show offline warning when opening local
documentation. (Closes: #12269)
- tails-virt-notify-user: use the tails-documentation helper to
improve UX when one is not connected to Tor yet, and display
localized doc when available.
- Fix rare issue causing automatic upgrades to not apply properly
(Closes: #8449, and hopefully #11839 as well):
* Allow the tails-install-iuk user to run "/usr/bin/nocache
/bin/cp *" as root.
* Install tails-iuk 2.8, which will use nocache for various file
operations, and sync writes to the installation medium.
- Install Linux 4.8.15 to prevent GNOME from freezing with Intel
GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics. (Closes: #12217, but fixes tons
of other small bugs)
* Build system
- Add 'offline' option, making it possible to build Tails offline
(if all needed resources are present in your cache). (Closes:

* Test suite
- Encapsulate exec_helper's class to not "pollute" the global
namespace with all our helpers. This is an example of how we can
work towards #9030.
- Extend remote shell with *safe* file operations. Now we can
read/write/append *any* characters without worrying that it will
do crazy things by being passed through the shell, as was the
case before. This commit also:
* adds some better reporting of errors happening on the server
side by communicating back the exception thrown.
* removes the `user` parameter from the VM.file_* methods. They
were not used, any way, and simply do not feel like they
fit. I think the only reason we had it initially was because
it was implemented via the command interface, where a user
concept makes a lot of sense.
- debug_log() Dogtail script content on failure.
- Add a very precise timestamp to each debug_log().
- Make robust_notification_wait() ensure the applet is closed. In
robust_notification_wait() when we close the notification
applet, other windows may change position, creating a racy
situation for any immediately following action aimed at one such
window. (Closes: #10381)
- Fix I2P's Pidgin test. The initial conversation (that determines
the title of the conversation window) is now made by a different
IRC service than before.
- Use lossless compression for the VNC viewer with --view.
Otherwise the VNC viewer is not a good place to extract test
suite images from, at least with xtigervncviewer.
- Add optional pause() notification feature to the test suite. It
will run a user-configurable arbitrary shell command when
pause() is called, e.g. on failure when --interactive-debugging
is used. This is pretty useful when multitasking with long test
suite runs, so you immediately are notified when a test fails
(or when you reached a temporary pause() breakpoint). (Closes:
- Add the possibility to run Python code in a persistent session
in the remote shell and use this for Dogtail to significantly
improve its performance by saving state and reusing it between
commands. This changes the semantics of the creation of Dogtail
objects. Previously they just created the code that then would
be run once an actionable method was called (.wait, .click etc),
but now it works like in Python, that Dogtail will try to find
the graphical element upon object creation. (Closes: #12059)
- Test that we don't ship any -proposed-updates APT sources.
(Closes: #12169)
- Make force_new_tor_circuit() respect NEWNYM rate limiting.
- Add retry magic for lost click when opening Tails' documentation
from the desktop launcher. (Closes: #12131)
